COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jackhammer is a very dark brown ale with a nice reddish hue. Offering a welcome warming sensation, it has a rich malty sweetness. Fruity esters, expected in this style beer, add to the already complex palate and help to provide an immensely satisfying experience!

3fourths (9265) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 Dark purple. Medium sweet plum and Chianti with cherry flavored malts up front turning more towards some bitter but fresh resinous, oily hops. Sweet but decently balanced. Only complaint would be that it doesnt stand out, and its not decadent enough to stand on its own as a mellow, soft old ale.

MiBG Fest 2005:

Reddish hazy hue with a small tan head. The aroma is malty with notes of maple, caramel, strawberry, herbal hops, and a bit oxidized. The taste starts salty and musty. Caramelized malt supports the twangy apple and cider character, light bitterness as well. A bit of non-aromatic pipe tobacco and a pinch of salt in the finish. The feel is sticky and full with a biting finish. Overall it is a nice beer but lacks a completeness and enjoyment factor I want in my English Olde Ales.

cheap (5540) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Bot. Thick spreading aroma of heavy ale. Initially, I think Im hitting impy stout but then there is this finer attitude about it. Malty fer sure and then there is a very weak sensation of milk stout. Quite complex and somewhat rude throughout. Strong warming sensations all round. Better not drink 2 of these, I think Im getting a little dizzy. Obnoxious and rude finish. Over the top. Too much for my girlie taste buds. Not impressed. Seems like it was a bastard child of an impy stout daddy and an American barley wine mommy.

Served in a cool dimpled mug at the brewpub. The body was dark copper with a slightly off white head. The aroma was short bread cookies with some mango. The taste was lots of caramel with hints of grapefruit. There was also some sharp mango fruit type character. Lots of apparent alcohol. Good stuff.

bottle. Amber brown with one finger head. Mild malt, very smooth and sweet. Ive only had a few old ales that really I appreciated, but this is definitely one.
